Last night LituanicaSat-1 arrived over southern California a little behind my predicted time of 8:12PM PDST, moving roughly from the south to southeast.  Heard the greeting, cut the power to 10 w, keyed the TS-2000 and immediately heard my downlink.  My downlink quickly went from partial to full quieting. Very impressive signal strength.  I called CQ at least a half dozen times but no one on. Too bad.

Anyway, thank you to the LituanicaSat-1 sat team for making this possible.  Amazing technology for a small cube in space ;-)
